Am I allowed to use a service dog?


Northwestern Polytechnic is currently reviewing its policies and procedures regarding service and support animals. 


Service dogs that are to be used in NWP facilities must have passed Service Dog Qualification Assessment for their rights to be protected under the Service Dogs Act and Service Dogs Qualifications Regulations as per legislation approved by the province of Alberta in 2017. 


At this time, emotional support animals are not subject to such rigorous assessment and to ensure the safety of all users of the Northwestern Polytechnic, are not permitted in NWP facilities. 


For more information on service dogs in Alberta, please consult the Government of Alberta's Service Dog in Alberta information page
